DFDS takes part in Global Seafood Exhibition

Many customers and partners took the opportunity to visit the DFDS stand during the exhibition

Earlier this month, DFDS took part in the annual Global Seafood Exhibition in Brussels. It is the world’s largest seafood trade event for buyers, suppliers and processing-industry professionals. Attendees from no less than 140 countries participated in the event.

DFDS Scotland is a well-known exhibitor at the event, personified by Robert Murdoch, Managing Director in Larkhall. Robert is retiring this year, so for the DFDS team, and especially for Robert, this year’s exhibition was particularly important.

Robert says: “The event is a very useful opportunity to meet and discuss current business and new business opportunities, as the majority of our customers in the industry are attending the exhibition.

This year, in anticipation of the impact of Brexit on the seafood business, DFDS’ extended Brexit team was also present to help and advise attendees at the exhibition on how to deal with the implications of different Brexit scenarios.

The event was a great success and I want to warmly thank everyone at DFDS who either participated at the event or who helped with the preparations.”
